Neurologist pleads not guilty to sexual abuse of patients

NEW YORK (AP). On Thursday, the neurologist pleaded not guilty to federal charges, claiming he was a serial sexual abuser of women who turned to him for help with debilitating chronic pain.

Prosecutors said Dr. Ricardo Cruciani had filed a complaint with federal court in Manhattan. He was expected to be released under electronic house arrest once he posted a $ 3 million bond secured by three properties and signed by three other people.

Kruchiani’s lawyer did not immediately respond to a message requesting comment.

Krusiani, 63, who lives in Winnwood, Pennsylvania, was arrested Wednesday morning in Pocono Pines, Pennsylvania, on charges of mistreating patients over the age of 15 at his offices in New York, Philadelphia, and Hopewell, New. Jersey.

The indictment described a doctor who specialized in rare pain syndromes, caring for patients who depended on him for care and prescriptions for addictive opioids, turning back rubbing and hugging into progressively more aggressive physical attacks and sexual urges.

The indictment says that if certain victims refuse to have sex, he responds by referring them to another health care provider who does not prescribe the same combinations or amounts of drugs.

Federal charges follow years of public complaints from Kruchiani’s prosecutors that authorities in some places did not take his crimes seriously, especially in Philadelphia, where he pleaded guilty to relatively minor misconduct involving seven patients.
